Stolen vintage bike recovered

THERE has been a happy ending to a news item featured in last week’s News

and Chronicle about a missing motorcycle - in what was another example of vehicle crime in Cumbernauld

We reported how the white Triumph Bonneville model had been taken from a lock-up in Craigieburn Road in North Carbrain at the beginning of the month – possibly in broad daylight.

The heartbroken owner reported the theft to police, but a twist of fate led to its safe recovery last Tuesday.

For eagle-eyed council workers spied the distinctive bike lying in shrubbery near Sandyknowes Road and called police - meaning that bike and owner should soon be happily re-united.
